Benchmarks When running tests, installing operating systems, and compiling software for my Ultra 5, I came to the stunning realization that hey, this system is 64-bit, and all of the operating systems I installed on this Ultra 5 (can) run in 64-bit mode.

when i do the same tests using Forte Developer 7 on Solaris 8 the 64's are faster and quite abit.. try building the 64's with say -xarch=v9a and see how you go.. from years of experience gcc on solaris is crap.
